Cunard Line is having to canceling their upcoming October 3, 16-night voyage on Queen Victoria for some emergency repairs on one of the ships propulsion units.

Queen Victoria has one more cruise before she heads to a German shipyard to undergo repairs on one of her azipods. The vessel has a propulsion problem and can only go a fraction of its normal operating speed.

Cunard said in a statement that there are no safety issues but it is required to take the ship out of service to make the repairs. Guest scheduled on the upcoming sailing will receive a full refund or book on additional cruise plus 15% off a future cruise, according to Travel Weekly.

Launched in 2007, the 2,014-guest Queen Victoria is scheduled to head to the Caribbean after repairs on October 17.
